Default What's your occupation: Engineer or Non-Engineer

I have this feeling that a large percentage of homebrewers are engineers. I was just wondering how large.

Timely post. I've often thought that, and also that a large percentage also have other culinary skills. And I just read/responded to one about if brewers cook much.

I am an engineer. I also cook stuff.

Someone needs to get busy with a Venn diagram.

While not an engineer by trade, part of my job is to teach technicians/mechanics how to use hydraulic and electronic schematics for my M109A6 Paladin (Google it...) 155mm Self Propelled Howitzer as well as how to use the Digital Fire Control......

I am nothing as of yet, but I will not be an engineer once I graduate in May. I am a business student, but also cook.
